tailofpailh20 or whatever his nick is ;)
showed me to that 4/19/82 show, [actually haven't listened to it for a while]

And people said that was the cassidy where they first started using that chord to signify the end of the jam..

Well, like on View from the Vault IV, they do a beyond-gnarly cassidy. It's just plain insanity..

Any of you guys happen to know any of those smokers on the archive? I just literally picked this one out of a random year:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd87-03-30.matrix.18255.sbeok.shnf If any of you have a chance, listen to that cassidy. I don't know how people could say that the '77 versions of cassidy like 5/9 are the best, when they are incomplete! That last chord thing, to me, is primal to that whole jam

Anyways, i'd really appreciate it if any of you did, I am trying to get my half brother back into the dead..recently he started playing guitar, and when he saw me play when we jammed, he asked where I learned, and i said "the dead"

go figure ha

I highly recommend the Solstice show from 89', the cassidy was really crispy!

I'm wondering when they will release a dvd of this show?
Clarence Clemmens was hot on sax in the second set!

Hey, Max...Check out this unbelievable scorcher of a Cassidy...from 10/12/83


Totally agree that, much as I revere '77, Cassidy is one of those tunes that simply got much better with age.

A good one.

I've always liked this one, don't think I could say exactly why, but it gives me chills starting about half way through. The same goes for TLEO. Just one of those things.


Sorry if it seemed I was picking on you. I'll try harder to behave. I doubt I'll change my opinions, but, on the other hand, I never thought I'd have some of the opinions I have now. Life seems to change some things without warning every now and then.

No apologies necessary, Edsel.

Despite what a lot of r-wingers think, REAL leftists are thick skinned.

You have to be if you;re going to stand up for things that are easy to ridicule like civil rights and free speech.

As I say, no matter how much I may disagree w/some people on this foum politically, the fact that we're all serious Dead Heads shows there's plenty of room for common ground.

I simply ask that if we're going to agree to debate, we debate the actual issues and take the time to respond with posts that actually make sense (the response I got from TT & rastamon to my last "non-dead post" doesn't even seem insulting--it's just one big non-sequiter...can't make heads nor tails of it, which indicates at best an unwillingness to back up one's views and at worst, a childish admission that you have no interest in the exchange of ideas at all, but rather an adherence to a set in stone way of thinking that has no possibility for change.

Of course, if that's how some people like to express themselves, --hey, it's free speech, so fair game, I suppose. Zippy the Pinhead talks in non sequiters all the time, and he's a hero of mine. (Zippy for President in '08!)

Glad to hear you like that MSG Cassidy; it's a thriller!
